INTRODUCTION
The DWA-S is a single circuit signaling device which can be
used as a bell ringer or on/off controller. It is capable of retaining
up to 1440 separate events for each day of the week in memory
plus a floating lunch and break schedule which can be activated
with a single key on the keypad or a remote switch. Automatic
adjustment for daylight savings time change is also provided. A
liquid crystal display on the front of the unit displays the current
time (in 12 or 24 hour format), date, and day of the week, bell or
on/of control status, programming prompts, and indication of
operation on standby power. A 3 x 8 keypad is used for setting
time, programming events, manual operation of bells or controls,
initiating lunch or break bells, and on/off control of the schedule.
Access to programming functions and manual keys (MANUAL,
START LUNCH, and START BREAK) is controlled by a user
defined security code.
The time keeping ability of the DWA-S is dependent on the
power source frequency. A clip switch setting selects operation
based on 50 or 60 Hz. During A.C power failures, the unit
switches to a quartz crystal time base and a 6 volt battery allows
the unit to continue to keep time and retain all data for 10 days.
Upon power resumption, the battery automatically recharges with
current limited to 1.5 Amperes.

MANUAL LUNCH AND BREAKS
(Bell Ringer)
This function provides a means of programming set lunch and
break lengths which can be initiated at various times during the
day. It is only available when the unit is used as a Bell Ringer
and operating on AC power. Pressing the START LUNCH or
START BREAK key at the keypad (or a remote momentary
switch connected to the unit) causes the bells to signal and a
displayed timer to begin counting down the programmed lunch or
break time. When the timer counts to zero, the bells
automatically signal again to indicate the end of lunch or break.
This feature is especially convenient for facilities which are
serviced by a lunch truck. When the truck arrives on site, simply
press the remote lunch switch to begin the lunch break. This
function also allows a warning bell to ring before the final lunch
or break bell.
To program a lunch, unlock the keypad then press the PRGM
LUNCH key. Use the forward keys to program the desired lunch
length, 00 to 99 minutes. Press the PRGM LUNCH key a
second time to display the length of time (0 to 9 minutes) a
warning bell will ring before the ending bell rings. The default is
0. Use the forward keys to change this value. Press the RUN
key to return to the normal display. Program breaks in the same
method.
Scheduled bells are inhibited during lunch and break periods. If
the schedule is turned off or the MANUAL key pressed while a
lunch or break period is in progress, the remaining lunch or
break time will be canceled. If the wrong key was pressed,
LUNCH instead of BREAK or BREAK instead of LUNCH, simply
press the correct key before the programmed time has expired.
The bells will not ring again and the time already elapsed will be
applied towards the programmed time for the break or lunch. To
review the programmed times without unlocking the keypad,
simply press the PRGM LUNCH or PRGM BREAK key. The
normal display will return after 5 seconds or when the RUN key
is pressed.
Page 14
SIGNAL ON/OFF
Pressing the SIGNAL ON/OFF key when the keypad is unlocked
changes the On/OFF status of the programmed schedule. When
the status is ON, bells or controls will operate based on the
schedule. When the status is OFF, the schedule is ignored and
only the manual key will operate the bells or controls. The
current On/Off status of controls will remain active until MANUAL
is pressed or the schedule reactivated. Press RUN to return to
the normal display. When the schedule is inactive, SCHEDULE
OFF will be shown below the time on the display.
MANUAL OPERATION
Pressing the MANUAL key when the unit is being used as a Bell
Ringer will cause the bells to signal for the length of time the key
is pressed. This provides a means of operating the bells at
unscheduled times. Pressing MANUAL while lunch or break is
counting down will operate the bells and cause the remaining
lunch or break time to be canceled.
Pressing the MANUAL key when the unit is operating as on
On/Off Controller will toggle the current On/Off status of the
controls.
The MANUAL key will not ring bells if the unit is operating on
standby power.
Page 15
STANDBY POWER
During AC power failures, the DWA-S switches to a quartz
crystal time base to maintain the time keeping ability of the unit.
A 6 volt battery allows the unit to continue operation and retain
the programmed schedule for 10 days. An * on the lower line of
the display indicates operation on Standby Power.
Programming, schedule review, and manual toggling of the
On/Off control status are available when operating on battery
back up. If operating as a Bell Ringer, the MANUAL, START
LUNCH, and START BREAK keys, and the remote START
LUNCH and START BREAK switches are inactive during AC
power failures. Schedule operation is also inactive when
operating as a Bell Ringer.
Page 16
RS485
The DWA-S comes equipped with an RS485 receiver which can
be used to synchronize the time and date of the unit with other
equipment. The option supplies three fly leads on the power
supply board for connecting to the sending device. The
interconnection cable between devices should be a minimum of
3 meters long to prevent interference to radio communications as
required by FCC regulations. Cables less then 3 meters in
length require a Fair-Rite bead (Lathem Part # VII0058) installed
around the cable. The figure below indicates the signal names
and corresponding wire colors.
Signal

Page 17
When installing multiple DWA-S units, all units EXCEPT the one
at the end of the RS485 line require jumper E2 be cut. When E2
is installed, a 100 ohm terminating resistor is internally
connected across the RS485 line to reduce the signal reflection
and thereby improve reception. E2, located on the far left side of
the CPU circuit board, can be accessed by removing the left end
cap. Refer to the figure on Page 8.
The OMNI:CHRON Time Recorder can be equipped with an
optional RS485 transmitter for communication with the DWA-S.
When installed, the DWA-S will synchronize with the time and
date from the OMNI:CHRON each minute.
The transmission (via RS485) of the following data to the DWA-S
is required to synchronize the time an date of the unit with other
time keeping devices.
DATA: 0#112233456677Z,CR (16 chars)
‘0’ is address byte
‘#’ is command code for Routine Time Update
